Our hormones regulate many aspects of health and wellness. But when hormone production declines or is out of balance, our health can suffer and we can be put at risk for many serious side-effects and health complications. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, replaces these missing hormones – to help restore the body to healthy functioning.
Menopause and aging are the most common cause of hormone imbalance in women. However, insufficient hormone production can occur in both men and women at almost any age, due to a variety of medical conditions.
At Prosperity Health in Bloomfield Hills and Canton, MI we offer a safe, natural and truly superior method of hormone replacement in the form of BioTE® pellet therapy. In this article, board certified Internist Dr. Nishath Hakim, MD explains the benefits of pellet hormone replacement therapy, the conditions it can help, and how patients can start taking advantage of BHRT hormone replacement today.
Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets (BHRT)
After a comprehensive examination, patient history and thorough blood work Dr. Nishath will determine the type and extent of your individual hormone imbalance, so that she can customize your hormone pellet therapy to your body’s unique needs.
The hormone replacement pellets are then placed just under the skin by Dr. Nishath in a fast and painless office procedure. At Prosperity Health, in Bloomfield Hills, MI Dr. Hakim exclusively uses BioTE® natural hormone pellets for bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
These time-released pellets release all-natural, bio-identical estrogen, and/or testosterone over time, to consistently balance hormones.
Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets (BHRT)
The primary advantage of BHRT pellets is that they are “bioidentical” – meaning that they are structurally the same as normal human hormones. So they bring your body’s hormones into balance naturally, in just the same way as the body does when it is functioning properly.
Additionally, the BioTE® hormone replacement therapy pellets we use are completely natural. Unlike other hormone substitutes that are synthesized in a lab from chemicals, we treat our Bloomfield Hills patients exclusively with hormone replacement pellets that are derived from completely natural plant or animal sources.
Another benefit of hormone replacement pellets is the constant and consistent dosing delivered by the time-release pellets under the skin. Other hormone therapies – like once-a-day hormone pills, and messy topical hormone creams, – release hormones in “spurts” which cause ongoing hormone level fluctuations. Pellets, on the other hand, keep hormone levels stable.
Conditions Hormone Replacement Therapy Pellets Benefit
Hormone deficiency plays a role in almost every major disease of the human body. Studies have shown that hormone replacement therapy can benefit and improve the symptoms of the following conditions:
- Perimenopause, Menopause & Post Menopause
- Thyroid Disorders
- Diabetes & Heart Disease
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
Additionally, certain mental health and psychological conditions may also be improved through the use of hormone replacement therapy, including:
- Mood Swings due to postpartum, PMS or menopause
But for many women, the greatest benefits of hormone replacement therapy pellets are related to intimacy and sexual health. Restoring and balancing female hormones can also reduce or eliminate:
- Painful sex
- Vaginal dryness
- Low sex drive
